Headhunters at My Doorstep a departure for Troost

first_imgRelated posts:‘Paradise Imperfect’ a competent expat memoir The life and times of a very big fish: United Fruit’s Sam Zemurray Book Review: ‘Green Season’ delivers delights, belly laughs and revelations ‘The Manatee’s Big Day’ an imaginative, bilingual intro to nature In 2004, J. Maarten Troost burst onto the travel-writing scene with his first book, “The Sex Lives of Cannibals.” Troost was lovable for many reasons: He was a Gen X slacker, but inspired enough to live in the South Pacific. He was funny, but not hyperbolic. He was Dutch, but not really European – more like a bumbling Englishman with a hemp necklace. He was smart, free-spirited and utterly fun.It’s hard to believe that Troost only has been famous for nine years. His books seem like a longstanding part of the expatriate canon, alongside Bill Bryson and Paul Theroux, exotic travelogues you can comfortably read in an airport lounge. Troost has an easygoing shtick: He spends time in far-flung places, either as explorer (“Lost on Planet China”) or as resident (“Getting Stoned with Savages”). These thoughts and actions are distilled into pithy essays. He sips a shell full of kava, hallucinates for days, and then writes an entertaining anecdote about it. Add a title rife with shocking words (“lost,” “sex,” “savages,” “stoned,” “cannibals”) and you’ve got a New York Times bestseller.But don’t let his latest title fool you: “Headhunters at My Doorstep: A True Treasure Island Ghost Story” is a very different kind of book. In less than a decade, Troost has aged dramatically. In the book, he is married now, a father, and – it turns out – a raging alcoholic. “Headhunters” takes place again in the Pacific, but the book is largely a memoir of addiction and recovery. Entire chapters are devoted to his AA meetings, detox and brief switch from vodka to ganja. Now clean and sober, the author yearns for a fresh start, but the tropics aren’t just a spot on a map. In “Headhunters,” Troost returns to the last place he was happy.For page after page, Troost cocoons himself in wit and observation, which is refreshing if you’ve ever slogged through the average addiction-and-recovery memoir. In his quest for healthier living, Troost (literally) follows in the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson and Jacques Brel, Paul Gauguin and Thor Heyerdahl, eccentric men who found themselves in the maritime equivalent of nowhere. But beneath these layers of curiosity and digression lies a very painful story. When Troost recounts his wife’s ultimatum (to enroll in rehab or leave), the tone is light, but the subtext is deadly serious, and so, we imagine, was the actual event.Here is the paradox: Troost’s writing style has remained the same, a breezy, self-effacing prose with jabs of social commentary, yet the man himself has grown far more mature. Would he be as interested in Brel’s cancer diagnosis – and Brel’s decision to run away from treatment and sail around the world – if Troost himself hadn’t faced mortality? Would he have read Stevenson, a dense Victorian author, in his younger years? Would he feel quite so stridently disgusted by Gauguin, an infamous pedophile, if he didn’t have children himself? When he sees some kids playing in shark-infested waters, and their parents seem unconcerned, Troost reassesses his own role as a father. Is he overprotective? Should he let the young’uns run free? And – more to the point – would the author of “Getting Stoned with Savages,” only six years distant, have anticipated such a middle-aged crisis?Fans likely will be divided into two camps: the ones who liked the old Troost, loafing and dreamy and boozy, and the diehards who don’t care what he writes about, as long as they enjoy themselves.For droves of Costa Rican expats, “Headhunters” will chime with familiar themes. Years ago, Troost wanted to escape the First World grind, and he found an out-of-the-way tropical paradise to do so. He wanted sun and adventure and colorful new friends. Now, Troost is a famous author who is trying to outdo his demons. He takes up running and brushes up on his French. He remembers his childhood love of “Kon Tiki” and now feels critical of its flawed Swedish captain. All kinds of expats will see themselves in Troost: wide-eyed children who grew up, ran away, made serious mistakes, and redeemed themselves in a global way.Halfway through the book, Troost injects a literary quest, and the somber narrative finds some momentum. Troost distracts himself with Stevenson’s biography and the “Treasure Island” mythos, and he starts to sail away from 12-step anguish.If you’re a cynical reader, you could argue that Troost is the ultimate sellout. In a way, he has written the same book three different ways and exploited his own addiction for new writing material. It’s hard to say whether his Stevenson kick is genuine. “Headhunters” might strike the reader as an agent’s suggestion, a sellable idea that Troost went along with, because a sequel was just about due.Yet Troost’s saving grace is his affable personality. He really is a pleasure to read, no matter his subject. For mainstream readers, Troost’s gift is the ability to educate, entertain and inspire simultaneously. For expats, “Headhunters” describes the sensations we often fail to verbalize ourselves. Between the lines, some gravity emerges, for even escapists must haggle with weighty situations. After years as the consummate escapist, a recovered Troost has apparently grown up. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

White House travel exemptions to Cuba do not cover tourism

first_imgRelated posts:US, Cuba agree to let airlines begin flights Wonkblog: What the new U.S.-Cuba travel rules mean for US citizens hoping to visit Cuba There’s a real estate boom in Cuba, but for now, only Cubans can buy Cuba embargo under pressure as Obama urged to pull down barriers Facebook Comments President Barack Obama announced major changes in the United States’ 53-year embargo on communist Cuba Wednesday, but don’t pack your bags just yet. Tourism was not among the travel exemptions listed by the White House.Wednesday’s announcement, which followed the release of jailed U.S. contractor Alan Gross, said that the U.S. would seek to reopen diplomatic relations with Cuba that were severed in January 1961. The U.S. also would seek to reestablish an embassy. It currently operates a Special Interest Section out of the Swiss Embassy. President Obama also asked Secretary of State John Kerry to reassess the U.S. distinction of Cuba as a state sponsor of terror. Cuba was placed on that list in 1982.As an initial step, Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Roberta Jacobson will lead a U.S. delegation in the next round of U.S.-Cuba immigration talks in January 2015 in Havana, according to the statement. President Barack Obama delivers an address to the nation from the Cabinet Room of the White House, on December 17, 2014. Obama spoke about the release earlier of Alan Gross, who spent five years in a Cuban prison. AFP PHOTO / POOL / DOUG MILLS“Neither the American nor Cuban people are well served by a rigid policy that is rooted in events that took place before many of us were born,” Obama said during a speech from the White House, noting that the U.S. has open relations with China, a far larger country that is also governed by a Communist Party, and Vietnam, where thousands of U.S. soldiers died in the war there.“For five and a half decades since, our policy toward Cuba has remained virtually frozen, and done little to promote a prosperous, democratic and stable Cuba,” said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in a statement. “I look forward to being the first secretary of state in 60 years to visit Cuba.”Direct flights from Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaría International Airport to Havana by the airline Cubana de Aviación restarted in November, but U.S. expats and tourists who want to travel to Cuba via Costa Rica may still risk running afoul of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, which oversees licenses and regulations for U.S. passport holders to travel to the island. The categories allowed to legally travel to Cuba now include:Family visitsOfficial business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizationsJournalistic activityProfessional research and professional meetingsEducational activitiesReligious activitiesPublic performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitionsSupport for the Cuban peopleHumanitarian projectsActivities of private foundations or research or educational institutesExportation, importation or transmissionThe new regulations would allow travelers to use U.S. credit and debit cards. Gringos who get their license to travel to Cuba could use those new payment options to bring back $400 worth of goods from Cuba, of which no more than $100 can consist of tobacco products and alcohol combined, according to the White House’s statement. Of course, Cohibas and Havana Club are legal in Costa Rica for those who’d rather skip the trip but still get a sip.Obama also announced expanded commercial sales and exports to Cuba, including certain building materials for private residential construction, goods for Cuban entrepreneurs and agricultural equipment with the stated aim of reducing Cuban citizens’ dependence on the government.Along with reestablishing diplomatic relations, the Obama administration announced that remittances would be raised from $500 to $2,000 per quarter for Cuban nationals, and that donative remittances for humanitarian projects would no longer require specific licenses.In Costa Rica, President Luis Guillermo Solís reacted to the news with an upbeat statement: “I think the normalization of relations between the United States and Cuba will open a new moment in the dialogue between the United States and Latin America. It could put an end to a policy that for many years has been ineffective and has brought much sadness to thousands of people in both Cuba and the US. I think it’s very good news.”Wednesday’s break in the ice that long locked the U.S. and Cuba in a 53-year trade and travel embargo came after a string of conflicts between the two countries, including a story uncovered by The Associated Press about USAID programs based in Costa Rica that endangered poorly-trained agents tasked with pro-democracy activities on the island.Obama said that the case of jailed U.S. contractor Alan Gross, who had been imprisoned for attempting to “destroy the revolution,” had been a major impediment to further thawing of relations. Earlier this year, Gross went on a hunger strike to protest his detention. Pope Francis urged both countries to resolve the case, and Cuba released Gross on humanitarian grounds, according to Obama.Both countries engaged in a prisoner exchange, Obama said, where three Cuban nationals serving federal prison sentences for 15 years were exchanged for a U.S. intelligence agent who had been in prison on the island for 20 years and was reportedly responsible for contributing to the arrest of the three Cubans and other spies, Obama said. The U.S. president did not name the agent, whom he called “one of the most important intelligence agents the United States has ever had in Cuba.”Obama said that despite the thaw in diplomatic relations, the United States would continue to aggressively push democracy and human rights on the island.“I believe we can do more to support the Cuban people and promote our values though engagement. After all, these 50 years have shown that isolation does not work. It’s time for a new approach,” Obama said.Watch President Obama’s speech announcing the change below:last_img read more

USled coalition unleashes wave of airstrikes on Raqqa

first_img Top Stories BEIRUT (AP) — U.S.-led coalition aircraft unleashed a wave of airstrikes targeting the Islamic State group’s stronghold of Raqqa in eastern Syria in what the coalition said Sunday was one of its most sustained aerial operations carried out in Syria to date.IS said at least 10 people were killed and many others wounded in the attacks which activists said triggered successive explosions that shook the city and created panic among residents. The U.S.-led coalition often targets IS-held towns and cities in Syria, but the overnight strikes on Raqqa were rare in their intensity. The IS-affiliated Aamaq news agency released a video of what it said was the effects of shelling Saturday by a U.S. drone on Raqqa. It showed several wounded men on a stretcher and at least three young boys being treated for wounds at what appeared to be a hospital.A Raqqa-based anti-IS activist network reported eight civilians were killed by the coalition airstrikes, including a 10-year-old child.The casualty figures could not be independently confirmed.The network, called Raqqa is Being Silently Slaughtered, said at least one airstrike targeted a group of IS members in the city center. Another targeted an IS checkpoint while a third destroyed large parts of an IS-held brick factory in the city. It said seven bridges used by civilians inside the city were also destroyed.In the remote northeastern city of Hassakeh, IS suicide bombers detonated an explosives-laden truck near a main power plant Sunday. State-run news agency SANA reported casualties and damage in the plant on the southern edge of the city.Fighting has raged in Hassakeh since the IS group attacked several southern neighborhoods held by government troops earlier this month. The violence has forced tens of thousands of residents to flee. The predominantly Kurdish city was split between government forces and Kurdish fighters, who have been fighting the IS group separately. 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches Comments   Share   Top holiday drink recipes Mesa family survives lightning strike to home In a statement, the coalition said it carried out 18 airstrikes throughout Raqqa province, destroying a number of IS vehicles and 16 bridges. An earlier statement said the attacks also destroyed vital IS-controlled structures and transit routes in Syria.“The significant airstrikes tonight were executed to deny Daesh the ability to move military capabilities throughout Syria and into Iraq,” said coalition spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Gilleran, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.“This was one of the largest deliberate engagements we have conducted to date in Syria, and it will have debilitating effects on Daesh’s ability to move” from Raqqa, he said.Raqqa is the de facto capital of the so-called Islamic caliphate declared a year ago by the Islamic State group in territories it controls in Iraq and Syria. The sustained airstrikes add pressure on the militants in Raqqa, still reeling from last month’s loss of the border town of Tal Abyad to Kurdish fighters. The town on the Turkish border was a major avenue for commerce and smuggling for the group.A militant website said 10 people were killed and dozens of others wounded. An IS-affiliated Facebook page said one civilian was among those killed and 10 were wounded including women and children. It also said the bombing destroyed several bridges.center_img In Iraq, a Defense Ministry statement said government forces repelled an IS attack Sunday morning on the town of Haditha and the nearby Haditha dam in Anbar province. At least 20 militants were killed in the failed attack, said the statement, which did not provide any further information.Iraqi forces, backed by Shiite militias, have been struggling to recapture areas lost to the IS group in the country’s west and north.In May, the militant group scored a stunning victory, overrunning Ramadi, the provincial capital of western Anbar province. Yet, Haditha and some other towns remain under control of government forces and allied Sunni tribal fighters.In Lebanon, some 200 Kurdish nationals staged a demonstration in downtown Beirut in solidarity with their brethren in Syria who are fighting against IS militants.___Associated Press writers Sameer N.

Law on new health body inconsistent MPs told

first_imgBy Evie AndreouHealth Minister, Constantinos Ioannou, told MPs on Thursday the government had referred the law on the creation of the organisation of state health services (Okyy) which was passed by the House plenum recently, due to inconsistencies.Ioannou, explained to the House health committee that the government referred the law, passed by the plenum right before the Easter holidays – as it was found to include inconsistent provisions.The government filed an amendment to correct the inconsistency between the provisions of the basic law as regards the declaration of possible conflict of interest in relation to the board members through their involvement in businesses related to the organisation’s activities, which is healthcare. However, there is a reference in the next paragraph to conflict of interest due to their involvement in any business.Ioannou told MPs last month that: “It used to be ‘in any businesses’ […] We changed it to ‘any businesses dealing with health issues’”.In the note accompanying the referral, President Nicos Anastasiades, said that parliament did not include the corrective amendment the government had suggested and, as a result, the inconsistency between these two paragraphs continued to exist and created problems in choosing and appointing the board members of Okyy.The president explained that the cabinet may appoint as a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors which neither he nor she, nor their spouse, has no interest in operations related to the activities of Okyy. However, the president said, the cabinet needed to check the degree of relevance to the activities of the organisation, of any enterprise owned by these persons.“This inconsistency causes confusion as to which is the correct application of the law and as to what the cabinet is asked to check to appoint the board of the Okyy,” the president said.In addition, he said, the provisions of the law under referral, lead to different treatment of the Okyy board in relation to the boards of other organisations as, in those cases, conflict of interest concerns their involvement in relevant businesses and not for any type of business they might own.Greens’ MP, Giorgos Perdikis, who had proposed the amendment which was voted by parliament, leading to the inconsistency, said that the House was being blackmailed and told that unless MPs withdraw the legislation they passed, three Cypriot members of the Okyy board had threatened to resign.“They are so prominent that they do not want to give the Council of Ministers their assets to check whether they are linked to healthcare businesses,” Perdikis said.The head of the House health committee, Costakis Constantinou, however, said that the minister never mentioned during the meeting anything about the resignation of any Okky board members.Disy, he said, accepted the referral.The eight-member board of the organisation of state health services was appointed last December, following cabinet approval. The main responsibilities of the board of directors are to oversee the operation of all public hospitals and centres of primary health care as well as the implementation of administrative and financial autonomy in public hospitals. Okyy will replace the health ministry in providing health services.You May LikeSolar PowerCalifornia Will Pay Homeowners to Install SolarSolar PowerUndoOpoopa10 Greatest American Inventions That Changed The World!OpoopaUndoHealevateMom Sees Tiny Hole In Goodwill Diaper Bag, Finds Something She Will Never ForgetHealevateUndo The Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoMayors lobbying president to prevent local govt mergersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
